    Help me pick my pack! :)

    Recommend a Gregory 40 or 50 liter. In my opinion the best pack on earth. Max weight then not more than 10 kilos. See Camino packing list, and use it. Good luck.

    Casa Ivar A few words from me

    Haha Ivar også gjør du dette på søttende mai! Så fint, og takk for all informasjon. Vi er vaksinerte her hjemme men vil nok vente en god stund inntil de har ordnet opp i Spania. Dette m.h.t. folk i Spania, spesielt helsearbeiderne og landsbybefolkningen. Takk for rolig, nøktern og...

    RIP, Alison Raju

    In 2004 we were on the way to Aldeanueva del Camino after a long hot day from Cacaboso. We stopped to rest near the motorway. One of our companions who had a German guide book said, a little bit despairingly, it's still 14 kilometers to Aldea. I disagreed saying "Alison says it's 4". "Haha...

    RIP, Alison Raju

    So sad to hear this Laurie. Alison has been a guiding star for many years. We've spoken about her every time we have been on or near the Padornelo. May she rest in peace.

    Ruta de la Lana. PDF form.

    Hello everyone, In the last few months there has been, happily, a steady stream of Pilgrims asking for a version of the simple guide I wrote for the Lana, completed in September last year. I've been sending it individually, but it is possible if you scroll down on a comment written on July the...

    LIVE from the Camino Villajoyosa alternative start to the Lana

    Incredible Alan. First the Lana, then the Olvidado and now on the road from Villajoyosa. Plus all the insights into Spanish history. Thanks. Fascinating reading.

    Planning Lana in late August 2019 from Valencia

    Thanks for those kind words Joe. Unfortunately I can't help with the Requena although I know where it goes, and it looks interesting. You could also opt for the Levante as far as Almansa and Alpera. The Lana /Levante split is just outside Alpera and clearly marked. Best. Kevin

    New guide. Distance, stages.

    Answering a query. The exact distance is uncertain due to walking around towns etc. But the total distance from Alicante to Burgos would be approximately 710 km. Not much more anyway. Stages? Again roughly 26 or 27 days but this would depend on the individual walking. Rest days not included...

    Questions about bars — need info for 2019 guide

    Hi Laurie!! You were right about the Invierno. It was marvellous!! Your guide was invaluable to us, and made any other guide unnecessary. One or two updates. Out of Barco De Balderdash. The Camino, clearly marked, after the Albergue goes through the village there and then crosses under the...
